Exploring the Opportunity for DeFi Interest Rate Markets

Welcoming Greg Xethalis to Multicoin Capital

We launched our hedge fund four years ago on October 1st, 2017 with a primary mission to accelerate the adoption of self-sovereign software. Since then, we have also launched two venture funds, a number of SPVs, and built out a global team of 14 people. Meanwhile, the crypto market has matured tremendously. When we first launched, there were no institutional custodians, no execution firms, almost no way to short. Most of the major exchanges didn’t even offer corporate accounts!

Protocols Don’t Capture Value, DAOs Manage Risk

This essay is a spiritual successor to On Value Capture at Layers 1 and 2. It also builds on some ideas from On Forking DeFi Protocols. In those essays, we explored potential value capture mechanisms for both Layer 1 (e.g. BTC, ETH, and SOL) and what we at the time called Layer 2 tokens.

扩展区块链的读写能力

编者按:本文由Tushar Jain和Kyle Samani共同撰写。 区块链是一个具有特殊的信任最小化属性的数据库。跟其他所有数据库一样,区块链也有以下两种操作:读取和写入。

网络资金流

DeFi 无疑是区块链最有效的应用。我们也花了很大一部分时间思考该方向,并且一直在向构建金融未来的优秀 DeFi 企业家学习。 但是大多数人想到区块链的时候,第一个念头是「价值转移」。原因是什么呢?因为这个概念更容易理解。在赛道中,Superfluid 是我们刚刚投资的一个新协议,代表自比特币出现以来价值转移的最大进步。
